"Dying Alive"….Again?

So apparently, the Penguins management is talking to Jaromir Jagr. To be a Penguin again.

Rumor or truth?

If Hossa splits town for more money (pretty good bet, there), the Pens are going to need another physical presence with a scoring touch to replace the combined loss of Hossa and Malone. Even if Jagr’s not in his prime (he’s not), it’s still some points on the board.

The real question is, is Pittsburgh ready to embrace our once-revered winger?

What do you guys think – would Jagr be welcome back in the Igloo and the Golden Triangle again?

Lotsa Hossa

All Hossa doubters can now be quiet.

After Hossa’s 2 goals yesterday afternoon, he’s put any and all doubt about his playoff contribution ability to rest; the clincher was the OT goal scored that sealed the Penguins victory on Sunday as well as finishing off the Rangers in the semi-final round.

Next up? The reviled Philadelphia Flyers. First game is on Friday at the Mellon Arena, time TBD (but most likely a 7 or 7:30 pm start).

Now, here’s a question for you Pens fans – especially those who’ve been watching NBC’s coverage of the games. Are you or are you not annoyed with Eddie Olczyk’s apparent anti-Penguins bias during commentary? His shameless pulling for the Rangers highly annoyed me, especially during yesterday’s broadcast. I’ve always respected him as a great Pens blue-liner and then commentator on the radio (before he took the coaching job) but after he was fired, it’s like he has this chip on his shoulder…

Maybe it’s just me, but I feel like he’s just bitter because Therrian has turned the team around so quickly. Agree? Disagree?

Meantimes, it’s Flyer-stomping time. I’ll get a match-up breakdown later in the week, along with my prediction.
